The dream of every homeowner with a beautiful garden/yard is to have a green lawn and healthy plants on it. A well organized and decorated yard must be maintained on a regular basis. In addition to mowing, one of the most important measures of care and maintenance is watering. It is good to know that it is not very difficult to create green areas but it’s difficult to maintain them. If you don’t want to create a new lawn and plant new flowers, shrubs and other plants in a year or two you should definitely think about buying an irrigation system/sprinkler system. These systems are especially useful for people who have large yards. The need for watering also depends on the types of plants and the area where the yard is located, but the truth is that these systems can be very beneficial. Now, let’s point out some of the most important benefits of sprinkler systems.
- It saves both time, water and money
Hand watering can be really fun especially during hot summer days. But it is not very entertaining when you have to water a yard twice a day. Modern people usually don’t have free time to do that. With the help of a sprinkler system this process is automated. You don’t have to worry about the time nor about the amount of water have you spent because the process is automated. All you have to do is check whether the system is positioned right and choose the right time. The best part is that you will have the chance to water the plants yourself whenever you want to. Simply turn off the system and do this procedure on your own. Irrigation systems can also help you reduce the water bill. After one month of use you will know exactly how much water you will spend because the automated system uses the same amount of water every day. On top of that, you won’t have to spend money for dried plants or lawn because they will be watered regularly.
- It keeps the soil healthy
There is no way in which manual watering can be efficient as an irrigation system. Very often people get carried away by some thoughts and they create small “ponds” on some parts of the lawn. These seeping of water into the soil will eliminate the nutrients or transfer them on some other part of the yard. This means that some of the plants will be left without the necessary nutrients. In some cases plants can start to dry or become unhealthy. Irrigation systems produce small droplets which keep the nutrients as they are.
- It prevents occurrence of weeds and diseases
Finally, with the help of an sprinkler system you can eliminate weeds and diseases. If you position the system in the right way you won’t water the areas where weeds usually occur. You can point the system to water the plant directly without watering the surrounding area where usually weeds occur. You can also position the system in a way that won’t water the leaves which means the occurrence of diseases will be limited.
